The Event Tickets module update to the 1.1.0 version enriched it by numerous extremely valuable features and capabilities.
Many of them introduce absolutely new functionality and provide Magento store owners multiple options for managing and selling event-based products.
Order confirmation emails may contain printable PDF ticket copies. This option is enabled from the backend: Catalog -> Event Tickets -> Manage Products -> Edit Product -> Event Booking tab -> General Settings section -> Generate PDF Tickets.
PDF copies are individual for each ticket and contain general information about the event, unique QR codes, event logos, or any other dedicated information.
Customers may use included QR codes and get detailed information about the event from the My Account area on your site.
The size of QR images can be easily configured from the admin panel.

Flexible Tickets Redeeming System
Starting from the 1.1 version, the Event Tickets extension obtains a powerful and flexible redeeming system. The system allows Magento store owners to keep records of sold tickets and assign unique IDs to them.
Magento administrators can redeem tickets in three ways:
Via QR code scanning using any mobile device
This functionality is available, if PDF tickets generations is enabled. In this case, the extension adds QR codes to every ticket and allows logged-in admins with corresponding permissions to redeem them.
Manual ticket code input
The extension generates an alphanumeric code for each ticket with an option to add code prefixes per ticket type. Product detail pages contain a link to the code submission page, where admins can enter and redeem necessary codes.
